Cutting Room for December 15

  • STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING! Unless you’re reading this in the bathroom. Then, you know, finish … but hurry. Why? Because Thursday, Dec. 16, is the last day in the Kickstarter Campaign for director Dan Mirvish’s Between Us, a dark comedy based on an Off-Broadway play. The film is scheduled to be partially shot in Omaha. Mirvish directed Omaha (the movie), so it’s only right we return his continued love with some financial “Why-thank-yous." That’s right, the film needs our donations to move from “good idea” to “Hey, that movie rocked.” Head to bit.ly/bSQc9j, where you can find out a boatload of information about the flick and where you can donate money to help it happen. For even more information on the whole shootin’ match, check out filmthreat.com/features/28294 for a great interview. There’s no time to waste, so get to clickin’ and donatin’. And just think, you’ll be doing more to help movies get made in Nebraska than any legislative body in the state ever has!

  • Three cheers, or more like 25,000 cheers, for Film Streams at the Ruth Sokolof Theater (filmstreams.org)! The National Endowment of the Arts just announced the theater will receive $25,000 in grants to continue their exhibition of repertory film and special programs. Not only is the grant a proud feather in the cap of the non-profit movie house, it will help ensure that important events, such as the LGBT-themed “Out in Film” series and the exploration of Latino, Latin American and Spanish cinema “Cinemateca II” series, continue to enlighten and expand our community discussions. Way to get your grant on, guys.
